“The two peaks represent the two peaks of Tararua, Puke Amoamo and Puke Ahurangi. The blue is the lake. The taniwha is known as Te Wheke which took the form of a log”. The above is how Wairarapa Moana Trust member Murray Hemi describes the design on a tukutuku panel that is kept at the Trust offices in Masterton The tukutuku panel was created by Myra Wineera (Rewai) and presented to The Moana Trust in Greytown during the 2005 AGM.
